Maggie wasn’t always known as the ‘Bald Ballerina.’ It wasn’t until she started losing her hair due to chemotherapy treatments. It wasn’t until June 2014 at 23-years-old, when she was diagnosed with Stage 4 terminal breast cancer. Not only did Maggie have to deal with her diagnosis, she also had to worry about how she would pay for the treatments. Her parents run their own business and Maggie has student loans she still needs to pay off. She knew she would need help. That’s where crowdfunding came in.
Maggie received support from her family, friends, and even complete strangers. This not only helped her pay for the treatments she needs, but Maggie also credits her diagnosis to her boost in confidence.
